ASSAM FISH RECIPE

 

In Asia, we are blessed with lots of fragrant herbs to make Assam curry, which also goes very well with snapper. In this recipe, we highly recommend using red snapper, golden snapper or batang. It can also be done with various types of fish heads.

Prep time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 25 mins

Servings: 2-4, depending on the number of other dishes

Ingredients:

1 fish head or 2-3 fish steaks

2 stalks of lemon grass

2 stalks of ginger flower, with stalks sliced

3 shallots, finely sliced

2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

1 tablespoon of balachan (shrimp paste)

fish curry mix (you can get this from the supermarket or at the wet market)

4 lady's fingers

1 tomato (cut into wedges)

3 sprigs of mint leaves

oil

Directions:

1. Pound the balachan with a mortar and pestle. Fry the balachan until fragrant.
2. In a pot, add the fish curry mix and shallots. Fry gently over low heat.
3. Add the balachan, lemongrass, garlic, tomatoes and lady's fingers.
4. Add 2 cups of water.
5. Leave to boil.
6. Put the fish slices or fish heads into the boiling mixture.
7. Add the ginger flower.
8. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar (you may vary the quantity according to the level of sweetness preferred).
9. Leave to simmer for 10 minutes or until fish is cooked.
10. Serve hot with rice.

Beautiful fish delivered with a smile!

I’m never disappointed! Beautiful fish with incredibly helpful staff. Will continue to order from this great company!

Fantastically Good!

Seriously I do not know much about fish. Thus I will trust that Dish the Fish will give me what is best for their clients. And I made the right choice. The fish is so fresh and taste great. Will definitely repeat my order again.

Awesome

Taste like those from top Jap restaurants

Strong fishy taste

All the meat was frozen and stocked together. Strong fishy taste after steaming or pan fried.

Succulent and fuss-free

I have ordered multiple times and never been disappointed (h/t Glen).

The Hokkaido sashimi-grade scallops are amazing and succulent. For the latest delivery at least, the scallops were delivered in an insulated package (with ice packs inside) to keep the scallops cold. Delivery was also punctual and efficient.

Highly recommended.
